MOVIE POLL: What's your overall opinion of this summer's movies?

What's your overall opinion of this summer's movies?

Awesome! I was happy with everything I saw...good shite!
Good, but not great. I was expecting a little more, but was still pretty damn entertained.
So-so. Some good ones, but some nasty bombs as well. Less than enthused.
I thought it was a BAD summer movie season. Nuff said.
It sucked monkey balls. Actually, scratch that...donkey balls!! If it wasn't for Apatow and his gang of yucksters, I'd tell Hollywood to go f*ck itself right now! In fact, that's my vote, a big F U to Holly and her boyfriend Wood.
I have no opinion on this as I did not see enough of the films to form an educated decision about this.

Excellent Summer For Movies!

After a disappointing spring where the two movies I was looking forward to the most let me down, this summer came as a surprise. 300 was ruined for me by the queen's poorly written subplot (Lena Headey gave a great performance though). And Grindhouse was ruined for me by QT's segment, in particular one scene with Mary Elizabeth Winstead's character that was played for laughs but struck me as very immature and misogynistic (sucked the fun right out of the movie). So I was worried this

And Grindhouse was ruined for me by QT's segment, in particular one scene with Mary Elizabeth Winstead's character that was played for laughs but struck me as very immature and misogynistic (sucked the fun right out of the movie). So I was worried this summer's movies would end up disappointing me as well.

Luckily, all six flicks I was looking forward to were good. That's a first.

I loved Pirates 3, especially Keira Knightley and Geoffrey Rush's performances! Spider-Man 3, The Simpsons, and FF2 were very good. I liked Die Hard and Transformers the least, but they were still A LOT of fun and Mary Elizabeth Winstead gave one of the best performances of the summer as Bruce's daughter in Die Hard!

I'd say the 2007 summer movie season was a good one, but FAR from great. Having said that, there were quite a few solid films released this summer: "28 Weeks Later," "1408," "Ocean's Thirteen," "Stardust (the biggest surprise of the summer)," "Ratatouille," "The Simpsons Movie," "Transformers," "Talk to Me," "Sunshine," "Waitress," "Rescue Dawn," and "Spider-Man 3 (a seriously flawed third installment, but I believe its pros outweigh its cons)."

"Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix"

"Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" was a flat-out disappointment, and I think "Knocked Up" is terribly overrated. Not to mention the painfully mediocre (i.e. "I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry") and the dreadful (i.e. "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer" and "License to Wed") flicks.

This summer, as far as I'm concerned, there were only two great films released into theaters: "The Bourne Ultimatum" and "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End." Both films were an absolute blast to sit through, especially POTC: AWE, which I've seen four times.

There's still a few summer films I want to check out, but I highly doubt any of them will be great. Good? Perhaps. But great? I don't think so.

The 2007 summer movie season is almost over. So all I have to say is:

Bring on the Fall/Winter movie season!

I had a good summer with movies. I didn't see anything that was bad. Some surprises like Superbad and Knocked Up. I thought they would be good, but they exceeded expectations for me.

I was pretty pleased with everything I saw this summer. Granted, I tried to stay away from the ones I knew/thought would suck...so, I had that going for me. But yeah, pretty good summer!

A summer like any other

Lots of movies sucked just as expected and some good ones and even a few surprises, just like any other summer.

I Spider-man 3 was a real flash in the pan for me. I enjoyed it upon my initial viewing, but after getting home and thinking about it I just came to the conclusion it was horrible.

Transformers did it for me, loved it, saw it 4 times, will own it.

Pirates was such a rip off. I felt like it made the last two films completely pointless, most specifically the love story.

Harry Potter was fine, I loved it and it did a much better job at picking and choosing than the last two

looooooved 1408.

Simpsons The Movie made me happy. Best episode I've seen in years.

FF Rise Of The Silver Surfer was somewhat entertaining.

Ratatouille was another one I really enjoyed.

Live Free Or Die Hard was boring.

The Apatow flicks were, indeed, the highlight of the summer. Damon's Bourne was the only film that was the third part of a series that was worth a damn. Ultimately, Superbad was a little treat for everyone who was so disappointed by how bad all other movies were, in general.

Well, I saw Die Hard 4 - loved it... uhm... that's it really. I hate the movies, I'm a DVD guy (pssst and a downloader... shhhhh... but in my defence, I buy WAY too many DVDs, so screw them, I'm entitled to downloading the odd movie... jerks!)

The only film I really disliked this summer was 1408. The rest were all awesome. But 1408...that was terrible!

Transformers was really terrible even though some action scenes, especially in the end, were great.
Die Hard 4: I got entertained but not much more.
Bourne Ultimatum: Really great!
